Do you count doubles? Margaret Court has by about 9 titles the greatest number of singles, doubles and mixed at all 4 slams, and the most in singles. Martina is behind her about 9 titles I think, and BJK not too far behind Martina. Per each slams in singles, Margaret won a record 11 singles titles in Australia, a record 7 for Chris at Roland Garros, a record 9 for Martina at Wimbledon, and a record 8 at the U.S. Open by Molla Burstead Malloy. These numbers beat all male players from any era. Post WW2 (WW1?), Chris has the record at the U.S. Open with 6 singles titles. I don't know the breakdown for each player singles, doubles, and mixed at each event, but I have it at home. This is a good question!
